Gnome’s Land Staycation – Gnome sweet home at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore

There are kids-oriented family staycations… and then there is the Gnome’s Land Staycation. I say that after a 2-day, 1-night experience at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore that blew us away with endless wonder and left the little ones with a ton of joyful memories. Yes, it’s been a week and they still can’t stop talking about it.

I’m jumping the gun by saying this so early in my piece… but your kids will love this!

‘This’ is PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore’s conversion of 2 adjoining suites into a whimsical land of wonder named The Gnome’s Burrow and The Gnome’s Treehouse. It’s no ordinary refurbishment but a custom-made transformation that is a triumph of creativity in itself.

Why gnomes? They are traditionally the keepers of the forests, a theme that melds seamlessly with PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore’s own green-themed ethos. Did you know that it’s Singapore’s first ‘Garden-in-a-Hotel’?

Each Gnome’s Land Staycation reservation includes 2 bedrooms. There’s a classy and subdued one for the adults and an explosion of vibrant colour, thrilling activities and all the Gnome’s Land props you could imagine for the little ones.

What we did on our Gnome’s Land Staycation at PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore

Most parents will readily admit that the ideal staycation is one where the kids are occupied with an endless array of activities, toys and space to explore and create. By that measure, The Gnome’s Burrow and The Gnome’s Treehouse are perfect.

We were in The Gnome’s Burrow.

Amazing craftsmanship has created a bunk bed layout that’s unlike anything you have seen. It reminded me of The Shire from The Lord of the Rings. The illusion of your little ones in their own wee world is made more real by the huge mushroom murals on the walls as well as the knee-high snail and gnome stuffed toys.

The ladders, free-hanging steps and slide made it seem like their very own playground and not just a room.

The Gnome’s Treehouse is designed as a free and open space to run, jump and climb. On the walls is more greenery to immerse you in the world of the arboreal gnome.

Inside the cupboard is a pair of junior robes and themed pyjamas, as well as a selection of gnome hats that my 2 little partners kept on all day and night. There are also 2 kid’s toiletries cases with Appelles amenities and Paw Patrol-themed toothbrush kits.

In keeping with the personal touch that is the hallmark of PARKROYAL COLLECTION Marina Bay, Singapore, dual carry bags with the little guests’ names embroidered on them were delivered to the room. Now, that’s attention to detail!

In the bags were a selection of activity books, colour pencil sets, candies and other confectionery.

It really is a testament to the wonderful range of activities that come with every reservation of a Gnome’s Land Staycation that our littles were not glued to the console playing racing games all day. Here they are gnome hunting, following the clues that came with the welcome pack.

There is a shelf full of wholesome games and kids’ reading for screen-free time, too.

One of the most enjoyable activities for the kiddos was the Gnome Kids’ Art Corner hosted by a delightful team who went all out to keep them engaged. It was a flurry of colouring, mask-making and bead necklace construction, all accompanied by delightful bites.
